CAIRO - Iran and Senegal will resume diplomatic ties and reopen embassies in one another's capitals, Egyptian state media reported on Thursday, ending two years of estrangement over Tehran's alleged links to Senegalese rebels.

Dakar broke off relations with Iran in February, 2011, accusing Tehran of supporting separatist rebels in its southern Casamance region.

The diplomatic upset was one of a spate at that time between Iran and West African nations over alleged arms smuggling that had damaged Tehran's search for trade partners on the continent.
